"Young Adult Fiction"
Elana K. Arnold's debut young adult novel Sacred “will appeal to many teens, especially fans of the Twilight series," proclaimed Booklist. School Library Journal effused it, "Filled with tension and angst... Readers will be looking for the next installment." Telling the tale of a small-town boy and a Gypsy girl that unfolds as the Burning Man festival is in full swing, Burning, her second YA effort, is just out from Delacorte. Kirkus hails it, "Lyrical and inspirational." Author Andrew Smith (Winger, The Marbury Lens), hails it as, "seductive and uplifting... An absolutely perfect summer read." Splendid, the sequel to Sacred, is out November, 2013.
Come hear about the YA genre, and how to succeed at it.
